But refs are losing control

Illini allowed to body up and defend with hands, elbows while M commits touch fouls.

They need to call the stuff on Illini

Rough start. Beilein should be done tooling with the lineup with Watson getting minutes etc. More Livers and Poole. Early fouls causing issues. We should spend the next few trips down the floor utilizing the dribble drive or pick and roll to get them into some foul trouble and slow the game down a bit

The next generation of refs have seen the longevity and notoriety of TV Teddy’s career and want to be rewarded just like him. There needs to be some accountability on performance.

The call on Matthews was bullshit, Robinson did push off. This team is better with livers on the floor over Robinson and beilein hasn’t adjusted to it yet.

I'd like to take a moment to thank BTN for their horrendous streams. I appreciate the throw back pixelation as well as constant buffering. I didn't really want to see the game anyway, I guess

Total confusion on defense after making the dunk. Glad it didn’t hurt them this time though, but that’s why he’s not getting more playing time.
